For the topic of discussion at hand we will consider what it takes to be an affiliate marketer on Click bank. To start off you will have to register or sign up. Much like what happens in other websites you will be required to choose an ID that you will use every time you log in. with this ID in place you can now access the Click bank marketplace and sample the products which you can sell. Click bank have arranged the marketplace in categories of products which makes it easy for you to select that which you feel most likely to sell. You can choose a single item or several.
Having selected the product(s) the next step will be to acquire a ‘Hop link’ that will be used to direct prospective customers to the relevant vendor sales page. The ‘Hop link’ takes the form of a HTML code which is only produced after your user ID is entered into a requisite form. Since each product that you want to sell has its own ‘Hop link’ you may end up with quite a number. Click bank affiliates usually file these hop links, sales page links, and product information for easy reference. To sell the Click bank products that you have selected you just need to have the hop links input to the sales material.
Being a vendor is not difficult either. You just need to have a product and pay an amount to have it listed on the marketplace. Before the product is sold it has to be Click bank approved.
